"Once upon a time - of all the good days in the year, on Christmas Eve... Bob Cratchit and Ebenezer Scrooge are busy preparing for their holiday celebration. Five years have passed since Scrooge's miraculous transformation, the strange circumstances of which no one could ever quite account for. But when Scrooge fails to make his annual appearance at Fred's dinner party, everyone is alarmed. Nephew Fred, Bob Cratchit, his son Tim, and Martha Cratchit's fiancé Daniel set out into the grip of a snowstorm to locate Mr. Scrooge. Their journey will take them right into one of the darkest slums of East London, as they discover what it truly means to Keep Christmas Well. Peppered with original drawings by Samuel Morgainne Blight, Jason C. McDonald's original sequel to A Christmas Carol recaptures the whimsical voice of Charles Dickens, with a message that is as fresh and relevant today as it was 175 years ago"--Page  of cover
